Doris Duke in Pictures and the Deconstruction of the Past

But I have never really understood the importance of words until I taught ten undergraduates at Western Kentucky University four days ago.

The students were chosen by two creative writing professors at Western out of a much larger group of undergraduates; they were about equally divided between young men and young women with one slightly older woman to add salt to the mix.
